Reading now: 649

Police Scotland has released a list of weapons it will no longer be legal to own in your home from December - and you could be paid for surrendering them to officers.

The list, issued under the Surrender and Compensation Scheme for knives and bladed weapons, has been published ahead of the Scottish Government banning ownership of 21 weapons, including butterfly knives and knuckledusters, from December 1.

While it was already a criminal offence to have these weapons in public, keeping them in the home will also soon be considered a criminal offence.
